    I finally got a RTS Prime. Right out of the package, the gray part second set of wheels are blocked by the gray fold down gas tanks and mudflaps part. I've tried adjusting the wheels and that gray part but it either doesn't look right or the wheels don't move. I've dremeled the gray part a little to get it to set flush with the back of the cab to no avail. Is it like this on all Primes or is it just mine? How do I fix this?

    if i get what you're saying, you have to rotate the wheels the other way (long way) around to make them go in the legs

    Those gray pieces are an issue for me, too. In my case, the whole piece won't fold down and sit flush against the back of the cab. I can get the two little nubs to clip into the slots on the legs, but then either the wheels won't lay flat, or the top of the cab pulls back. Mildly annoying.

    Can't make mine sit flush either. I've pushed on it like a gorilla squeezing a banana....nope. Still won't stay down.

    I got mine to sit flat but I had to whittle the shit out of that gray part to do it.

    they might have put the wrong grey piece on there. The first one I received had a left wheel piece on both the left and right hips and had caused a chunk of the extender piece to be distorted and wouldn't allow the tire to slide in.

    Thanks guys. Yup the gray gas tank/mudflap combo thing won't lay parallel to the ground and it gets in the way of the second set of wheels. I guess I'll just continue dremeling until it works.
